SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encoded information between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH because of the improved security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. While SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
SSH access may be allowed with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud website hosting service you have selected comes with this function as standard. If not, you could include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it immediately. You'll discover all the details which you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, alongside detailed Help articles in which we have listed all the commands which you can use within the account and examples of the syntax which you have use. The SSH password can be modified from the exact same section at any time with several clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely and securely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is available as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you are able to add it through the hosting Control Panel if required - even just for the current month. In either case, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the feature with one click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same place, you'll see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box in which you may type in the password that you would like to use, as it does not need to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you can also change it as frequently as you want. A complete list of the commands which can be executed within a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a number of instances. An extra feature after SSH access is activated shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client which supports such connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS
If you purchase a new virtual private server from our company, it will provide full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to handle everything through an SSH console. The feature is included by default with all plans, so you won't have to enable or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server shall be set up shortly after you purchase it and the minute you get the Welcome e mail with the login details, you can connect via the server’s primary IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there will be no restrictions with regards to the commands you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you can install and run any app that can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
